Herbert Denis Edleston Elliott (30 March 1887 – 26 April 1973) was an English cricketer. Elliott's batting and bowling styles are unknown. He was born at Newport, Shropshire and educated in the town at Newport School.[1]

Elliott made two first-class appearances for Essex against Kent and Northamptonshire in the 1913 County Championship,[2] scoring just three runs and taking a single wicket.[3][4] He later served in World War I, holding in December 1914 the temporary rank of second lieutenant.[5] By 1916 he still held the rank of second lieutenant; it was in that year that he resigned his commission from the Shropshire Light Infantry due to ill health.[6] At some point after this his heath recovered enough for him to serve in a training capacity in the Territorial Force. By July 1919 he had been promoted to captain in recognition of his command of the Malvern College Contingent of the Officers' Training Corps.[7] He was still the Division Captain of the Malvern College Contingent by 1923, in November of that year he was promoted to major.[8]

He died at Bognor Regis, Sussex on 26 April 1973.
